Pact Nigeria is inviting applications from consultancy groups/firms for the work assignment described in the Terms of Reference below. The successful individual or organization will be tasked to conduct an Endline data collection on cluster randomized trial of the impact of Birth Preparedness Savings (BPS) program on Health Facility delivery in Gombe Northeast Nigeria. The specific objectives for the Endline assessment are the following:
The primary objective of the study is to determine whether BPS increase health facility delivery amongst SAQIP’s mothers’ groups’ members who had a live birth in the previous 12 months compared with similar members in mothers’ groups not offered BPS.
The secondary objective will answer the following questions:
• Is there an association of SAQIP’s mothers’ groups’ intervention with health facility delivery irrespective of BPS?
• What is the difference, if any, in health facility delivery between mothers’ groups established at different time periods?
• How much do pregnant women save in preparation for childbirth and how is this distributed considering their poverty status?
